Water Exemption for Agriculture Usage Takes Effect
Agricultural Water Exemption Public Chapter 427 creates a sales and use tax exemption for water furnished by a TN utility district and used exclusively in a farming operation.
Effective Date: July 1, 2019
- Meters fully designated for approved agricultural purposes are eligible for sales & use tax exemption
- Be sure to visit your local utility company in TN on or after July 1 to request and apply for this exemption
- Take a copy of your Ag Sales and Use Tax Certificate of Exemption that was issued by the TN Dept. of Revenue

This tax exemption on water was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the TN Poultry Association and the TN Farm Bureau Federation and the legislation was sponsored by Rep. Curtis Halford and Sen. Paul Bailey.
